LG prepares launch of iPhone competitor

LG Electronics is readying the launch of the LG-KE850 mobile phone. Due to launch in February, little is known about the phone, apart from images showing a large touch screen on the front of the device making it look very similar to the iPhone. I am not expecting it to offer the massive features demonstrated by Steve Jobs at the MacWorld 2007 Keynote, but if it has a nice interface and offers good music playback, I think it will sell very well.
LG did very well with the launch of their Chocolate and the new KE850 is expected to offer some great features and a wicked design too. The LG handset will be slightly smaller than the iPhone, 99mm by 54mm, with both being around 11mm thick. There are more images over at Mobil Portal.
